I'm unaware how to manually install and/or convert an .rpm to a .pet. (There's a guide somewhere though, isn't it?)

Edit /usr/local/bin/pupzip at line 100:
Code:
RPM2CPIO="rpm2cpio2"

Remove last '2':
Code:
RPM2CPIO="rpm2cpio"

Click rpm files, then Xarchive opens.
But depends on the RPM version. Most of recent RPM's cannot extract .
See: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=46276
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=48781

P.S.
LupQ-509 supports some recent RPM extracting.

Why does copying a ripped DVD (file is 6532MB) from my laptop to a USB stick (with plenty of space) fail at 4096MB?

It did so on two different USB sticks.

What file system did you format the USB stick.
The maximum fille size of FAT is 4GB.

I tried a lot of the suggestions here, and shinobar's was the one that did it for me. It's working on Firefox and Opera, and those are the only ones that really matter to me. X3
Unfortunately, whenever I try on Konqueror, nsplugin is popping up segmentation fault errors. Ah well. I justwon't use Konqueror for YouTube or Transformice.

Osewa ni narimashita, shinobar. c:
I hope I said that right? My Japanese is just a tiny bit rusty.

I have Lucid 5.1 with the 003 update.

I see there is a Lucid 5.1.1 with a 002 update.

Is there a reason to "upgrade" or is 5.1 with 003 essentially the same as 5.1.1 with 002, please?

Is there a 5.1.1 thread? I could not find one.

Doc, surprised you missed this one.

It's much the same but built with Barry's latest Woof.

Surprised? Not. I miss a lot of stuff ... Rolling Eyes

I'm spread kinda thin and am often running on 4-6 hrs of sleep when I really need about 8hrs. I know, I need to deal with that! Meanwhile ... COFFEE!

I am guessing I should use this?

I don't get the XDelta app.

I have the Delta from 5.1 to 5.1.1

When I click on it, or MENU-UTILITY-XDelta it talks about creating something but the text is unclear.

Do they intend to say that if I click on the XDelta to update from 5.1 to 5.1.1 and accept the defaults it will take the existing lupu-510.iso and convert it to a lupu-511.iso?

Do I need the XDelta .iso to be in the same folder as my lupu-510?

It says ...

Quote:
Old File:
/mnt/home/savestuff/downloads/lupu/lupu-510.iso
Delta File:
/mnt/home/savestuff/downloads/lupu/lupu-510.iso___lupu-511.iso.delta

Drag iso to upper box and iso.delta to the lower box and click generate. You will get upgraded iso to the same folder as your iso. I dont know if they have to be on the same folder. I keep isos and iso.deltas on the same folder and it has worked.

I guess what is not clear is that it does not upgrade your current installation. It only upgrades an older iso to the newer one. The advantage is you don't have to download the entire new iso which is good for slow connections.

You can try your old savefile copy from 510 with 511. It might even work.I havent tested because I use always fresh install.

This worked.

I then opened the ISO and replaced the existing three Frugal files with the newer ones from the 511 iso, edited GRUB replacing all occurences of 510 with 511, then rebooted.

After covering my screen and scrolling-by all of the files updated to 511 everything appears to work fine.

I then went to MENU-Setup-QuickPet and under News grabbed and installed the 002 update.

Other than a couple of icons out of place on my desktop and a different taskbar icon for Personal Storage I don't see any obvious difference.

Thanks!

The tooltip for the network tray icon now has a monthly accumulation upload/dowload value. Barry wrote about this in his blog, many of us in rural areas have ceilings, this lets us know if we're close.
